Because I'm Very Visual?

There's an article in the Wall Street Journal today about faceblindness. The online journal links to a test you can take to determine how well you do with remembering faces (and names and objects).
My scores:
Face Recognition Memory
Overall, you got 72% correct! The average score on this test is 85% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was 9. (booo!)

Object Recognition Memory
Overall, you got 88% correct! The average score on this test is 86% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was 55. (yay!)

Verbal Recognition Memory
Overall, you got 33% correct! The average score on this test is 77% correct. Your percentile rank on this test was less than 1. (boooooooooo!)

How well can you do?

I hate these tests. I had to do a few of them for some psychology classes and they always give me a headache. I think every year my scores get lower and lower.

So basically, you're pretty average in terms of memorization skills while I'm awesome at some and suck at others.

Right. But when I did my first memory test I had one of the highest scores in the class. However, on that test, they tested memory for faces, but the faces had hair and you could tell which were male and which were female. I actually created a memory test just this year for an experimental psychology class using random words in red and blue. I scored pretty high on that one too.
